"S.H.I.E.L.D. and their allies have never failed to keep Earth safe, but the sudden arrival of Mantis, Moondragon, and the artifact known as the Black Vortex, may finally tip the scales. The Black Vortex promises untold power to any who look into its depths. Cosmic power and clandestine antagonists promise a fierce fight between the forces of Earth and those from beyond."
— Chapter Briefing

Important Notes:

The only way to recruit Mantis is to complete the list of Tasks. One of the Tasks requires the defeat of an Epic Boss. This can be done by having the requirements needed to unlock the Epic Boss or by skipping the task by paying 30 Gold icon.png Gold. The requirements are:




  Mission 1 - Moondragon Daydream
Epic  Mission 2 - Cosmic Bomb
  Mission 3 - Come And Get Your Vortex

"Moondragon has succumbed to its promise of Cosmic power! Star-Lord trusts S.H.I.E.L.D. only as far as he can throw the helicarrier, and decides to keep the Black Vortex safe and heal Moondragon without S.H.I.E.L.D.'s intervention. Well, most of S.H.I.E.L.D., the Agent is an honorary Guardian of the Galaxy after all."
